garmaguardBianca and Pete Badawy hope the Sharks smell success when they pitch GarmaGuard, their anti bacterial spray for clothing, in Shark Tank’s season twelve premier. Pete is an Army veteran and a cop and Bianca is a nurse. After their shift, the house rule was to  strip down out of their work clothes before  entering their home. They didn’t like the idea of bringing all that odor causing bacteria that got on their clothes into the house. When they went looking for a spray that could disinfect clothing, there wasn’t one. Like any good entrepreneurs, they set out to create their own and Garma Guard was born.

The couple knew they’d use this product they would create throughout the day, so they didn’t want any harsh chemicals. After some research, they found an organic, safe solution: citric acid. Citric acid is used in many cleaning products and is colorless and odorless. The couple knew making GarmaGuard organic would make it more acceptable to more people.

With the help of a company called Elysian Labs, the couple managed to come up with  an acceptable formula. GarmaGuard has no bleach or other harsh chemicals and it is safe on uniforms, shoes, hats etc. They target first responders and front-line workers as their primary market, but they’d be happy to sell to regular folks too!

They currently sell on a variety of sites selling police supplies and nursing supplies. The product is also available on Amazon. A can of spray with over 200 applications will set you back $12.99. When you buy in bulk, the cost per can goes down. They likely need a Shark’s help with manufacturing and inventory. Will one of the Sharks smell an opportunity?
